In IIS7 (atleast till RC0 release), you might find no UI way to restart IIS services (IISAdmin, WAS, W3SVC). Only way is by using the command line exe - the classic IISRESET. Here is my UI module which give you a UI way to do this. This also shows the status of each IIS service running.


Gives UI to stop / start / view the status of the IIS services.


Just an UI way of doing it :-)


IIS 7.0

To add this module in your IIS 7 manager follow the below steps:

  1. Download the IIS7IISRESETUI.dll.
  2. From inetsrv folder Drag and Drop the IIS7BackupRestore.dll into the Global Assembly Cache (C:\Windows\assembly) or use GacUtil -i IIS7BackupRestore.dll to install it to the GAC.
  3. Under File Menu, browse for the file %WinDir%\System32\InetSrv\config\Administration.config.
  4. Search for the <moduleProviders> section and add the following

    <add name="IIS7IISRESETUI" type="IIS7IISRESETUI.MyModuleProvider, IIS7IISRESETUI, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=db9daa3d2ea5f6fd" />

  5. Search for the <modules> section and add the following

    <add name="IIS7IISRESETUI" />

  6. Open Inetmgr and You will see the module listed in your IIS 7 Manager if you would’ve followed the above steps properly.
